For those who are craving for good seafood in Los Angeles Area, this is the place to be. There's a lot of restaurant in Redondo Beach Pier but nothing beats Quality Seafood. Fresh oysters, fresh lobsters (although lobster in East Coast and oysters in Baltimore is cheaper), but honestly they're really good.
Now in Oysters, you can have a selection on which oyster to get. Pacific oysters are the best still. There's a few that stands out too, Baja is good. You can ask the shuckers which one they will recommend if you're not too sure. Being a chef, I'm quite used to picking out seafood. There are some oysters that are good for steaming, which is cheaper, they sell it by pound. The fresh raw ones are sold by pieces. I would say some are a bit pricey but it's good to try a few different kinds to figure out which one you like.
Lobsters, you can pick which lobster you'd like. They'll cook it for you. It was a bit pricey but they're seriously sweet. I would say it is probably the best one I've had so far, so no regrets.
There are other seafood available, crabs, clams, fish, (we tried the cod before, they made it into fish and chops but I felt it was overcooked). The best part was when they had fresh sea urchins. That was the bonus. It was nice and taste so clean and fresh. You can still see the urchin's spikes moving. Back where I live, usually we just pick up sea urchins from the waters and eat it while boating or at the beach. Didn't have to pay for it because it's free. But letting my family experience eating sea urchin like this here at Redondo, it is pretty awesome.
Seating, well, it's a picnic style where in you take paper table covers and set up your area. It's self-service and you might want to bring your own cutlery or nut cracker (for your lobsters/ crabs). I would bring my own wipes as well and sanitizer because the restroom is not too hygienic. It can get crowded too so go at the time before everybody comes down for lunch.
All in all, despite it being too pricey, I would go back there whenever I have the chance.
